  • High-Energy Spectroscopic Astrophysicsby Steven M. Kahn; Manuel Güdel; Roland Walter; Peter von Ballmoos; Rashid A. Sunyaev

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 131.90

    After three decades of intense research in X-ray and gamma-ray astronomy, the time was ripe to summarize basic knowledge on X-ray and gamma-ray spectroscopy for interested students and researchers ready to become involved in new high-energy missions. This volume exposes both the scientific basics and modern methods of high-energy spectroscopic astrophysics.... more...

  • Cosmic Ray Interactions, Propagation, and Acceleration in Space Plasmasby Lev Dorman

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 339.67

    This book provides an extended review on energetic particles interactions, propagation and acceleration in space plasmas. Its four chapters address key problems in CR Astrophysics and CR Geophysics. The book contains more than 1,300 full references. more...

  • Recollections of "Tucson Operations"by Mark Gordon

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 153.89

    This book is a personal account of the evolution of millimeter-wave astronomy at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. It begins with the construction of the hugely successful, but flawed, 36 ft radio telescope on Kitt Peak, Arizona, and continues through the funding of its ultimate successor, the Atacama Large Millimeter-wave Array (ALMA), being... more...

  • Astrophysicsby Wolfgang Kundt

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 73.64

    For a quantitative understanding of the physics of the universe - from the solar system through the milky way to clusters of galaxies all the way to cosmology - these edited lecture notes are perhaps among the most concise and also among the most critical ones: Astrophysics has not yet stood the redundancy test of laboratory physics, hence should... more...

  • The Quantum Structure Of Space And Timeby David Gross; Marc Henneaux; Alexander Sevrin

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 37.00

    Ever since 1911, the Solvay Conferences have shaped modern physics. The 23rd edition, chaired by 2004 Nobel Laureate David Gross, did not break with that tradition. It gathered most of the leading figures working on the central problem of reconciling Einstein’s theory of gravity with quantum mechanics. These proceedings give a broad overview with... more...

  • Energy Budget In The High Energy Universeby Katsuhiko Sato; Junji Hisano

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 176.00

    The existence of materials with very high specific energies greatly exceeding the local virial temperature is best represented by cosmic rays, whose origin has long been a mystery. Recent astrophysical observations in X-ray, gamma-ray, neutrino, and high energy cosmic ray experiments, in conjunction with theoretical studies, have revealed various new... more...

  • Magnetospheric Research with Advanced Techniquesby R.L. Xu; A.T.Y. Lui

    Elsevier Science 1998; US$ 285.00

    Launches of several major magnetospheric research satellites (i.e., Polar, Wind, and Interball) set the scene for extensive multi-platform investigations of the Earth's plasma environment in the era of the International Solar-Terrestrial Physics Program. Exciting new results from this Program and the ongoing innovative advances to scientific instrumentation... more...

  • Plasma Astrophysics, Part Iby Boris V. Somov

    Springer New York 2006; US$ 158.10

    This well-illustrated monograph is devoted to classic fundamentals, current practice, and perspectives of modern plasma astrophysics. The level of the book is designed mainly for professional researchers in astrophysics. The book will also be interesting and useful to graduate students in space sciences, geophysics, as well as to advanced students... more...

  • Fundamental Questions in Astrophysics: Guidelines for Future UV Observatoriesby Ana I. Gómez de Castro; Willem Wamsteker

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 120.91

    Modern astrophysics is a mature science that has evolved from its early phase of discovery and classification to a physics-oriented discipline focused on finding answers to fundamental problems ranging from cosmology to the origin and diversity of life-sustainable systems in the Universe. For this very reason, progress of modern astrophysics requires... more...

  • The 2nd International Conference on Nuclear Physics in Astrophysicsby Zsolt Fülöp; György Gyürky; Endre Somorjai

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 167.99

    Launched in 2004, "Nuclear Physics in Astrophysics" has established itself in a successful topical conference series addressing the forefront of research in the field. This volume contains the selected and refereed papers of the 2nd conference, held in Debrecen in 2005 and reprinted from "The European Physical Journal A - Hadrons and Nuclei". more...
